On May 23, The Columbus Dispatch published a Letter to the Editor from Barton Hacker, president of the Central Ohio Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). It was full of inaccurate information.

Rebuttal was necessary, and Jack Heinzman, executive secretary-treasurer of the Columbus/Central Ohio Building Trades, took it upon himself to set the record straight.

Heinzman’s Letter to the Editor appears in today’s edition (May 31) of The Dispatch, and also online at www.dispatch.com.

His letter concludes with, “In the court of public opinion, facts matter.” And that’s exactly what he provides in order to help readers understand why Franklin County Commissioners signed a memorandum of understanding with local labor unions for the $45 million Hall of Justice renovation project.

ACT Ohio commends Jack for his effort and encourages everyone to read his entire letter and spread the word so others read it as well.
